Need some high-protein vegan snacks that will help you crush the munchies and help you safely arrive at your next meal? You are in the right place! Here, you will find 10+ easy-to-make and tasty vegan snack ideas. All good for both your body and your jam-packed schedule!
If there is one thing I am sure about myself is that I love my snacks. As a busy business owner and mom of four, it is not always easy to find enough time to cook a complete meal from scratch every time I feel famished. This is why I often resort to high-protein, on-the-go snacks. I love them as they help me keep going between meals and avoid feeling ravenous as soon as dinner time arrives. This, in turn, has been key in maintaining my weight after I lost over 50 lbs a couple of years ago!
Not only they are a quick and effective way to maintain my energy levels steady throughout the day, but they can also amp up our daily protein intake, which is always nice if you are following a predominantly plant-based diet as I do!
All of my vegan high-protein snacks are ready in 15 minutes or less. Plus, they contain all the micro and macronutrients our bodies need to feel full and satisfied for longer -namely carbs, fats, and (of course) proteins.
Lastly, these snack ideas are all incredibly kid-friendly and can be prepped in batches and then stored in airtight containers. This means that you can have something that is actually delicious and good for your body at hand throughout the week!
From refreshing smoothie bowls to decadent oatmeals and cookies and scrumptious air-fried falafels, here are my favorite high-protein vegan snack recipes for you!

Plus, the recipe is totally banana-free, which is great for people who cannot have it -or just do not like its taste!
Celebrate the arrival of the summer season with a decadent, fresh pudding. This chia seeds snack can be prepped in advance and is ready in less than 15 minutes. Plus, it is loaded with nourishing ingredients, such as strawberries, chia seeds, and yogurt. (Even though the original recipe calls for Greek yogurt, you can easily swap it with some plant-based one for a fully vegan recipe). Lastly, a special addition to this healthy pudding is the incredible Orgain Vanilla Protein powder, super smooth and easy to blend with the other ingredients!

7. Air Fryer Falafel 🧆
After six amazing sweet recipes, one of my favorite savory high protein recipes: air-fried falafels. Since I bought my first air fryer about two years ago, I have never been able to stop using it!

Vegan, gluten-free, and refined sugar-free: this Chickpea Cookie Dough Fudge is definitely one of my go-to recipes to satisfy any sugar cravings while filling my tank with good plant-based proteins! And you cannot even taste the chickpeas in it, which makes this recipe perfect also for you picky eater kids!
Great for both a quick snack or a decadent breakfast, these green pancakes are a true powerhouse of nutrition and deliciousness. They are made with wholesome and easily available ingredients, such as chickpea flour, plant-based protein powder, and spinach. Moreover, they contain up to 34 grams of plant-based protein and 12 grams of fiber in just one serving! I love to prep them in batches and keep them in the fridge for when I need a quick pick me up or to refuel my body after a strenuous workout.
Only four ingredients (chickpeas, oil, brown sugar, and cinnamon) for one of my go-to plant-based snacks! As explained in this article about the benefits of eating chickpeas, this legume is not only particularly rich in protein but also in fiber, vitamins, and minerals that can actively support our well-being and promote weight loss and maintenance. In addition, chickpeas are extremely versatile and great in both savory and sweet recipes. I love finding new recipes -like this one from Plant-Based and Broke- so that I never get bored consuming them!
White beans in a smoothie? This is a big yes for me! Beans not only boost the protein intake of the smoothie but also considerably improve its texture. But don’t worry, you won’t taste them! On the other hand, you will be surprised by of fruity, refreshing, and simply delicious this smoothie is. Plus, it’s a great way to secretly hide some veggies and legumes into your kids’ diet.
There is nothing more satisfying for me than snacking on some crunchy granola bars! Even better they are homemade and high in protein. These from Fannetastic Food are not only extremely easy and quick to make, but also packed with precious antioxidants and fiber! Everybody will love them, from kids to athletes and busy moms!
